    Hi all

    I was just woundering if any one else has a craving for ice, or is it just me.

    I go mad for the stuff, I had the same craving with my other 2 pregnancies, I even bought an Ice crusher during my second.

    The craving is so bad sometimes eps when I run out lol.

    when DH tells people that I crave ice they think that I'm nuts, but I've read that it's called Pica (when you crave not foods), apparently it's linked to Iron difficentcy (sp) so started taking my supplements again.

    whats everyone else craving, am I just wierd?

    I had a major thing for ice throughout my pregnancy. Could have quite happily crunched on it all day. Haven't touched it since mind x

    Oh yes, crushed ice. I would sit in the kitchen with ice cubes in a bag and crush it then eat it. Mmmmm

    Ooo, I don't know yet, but we are secretly hoping for a boy. The chinese gender charts say boy, I'm having a completely different pregnancy than with my daughter, and now this!! I'll let you know in about 7 weeks hopefully!

    Meanwhile I'll just sit here at work with my glass of freezing cold orange squash as it's the closest thing I can get when not at home!!

    Hi all

    glad its not just me,

    I don't know what I'm having but I have had 2 boys and craved Ice with both of them so could be true, although this pregnancy has been completely different from my first 2 except the ice thing.

    I think I like the texture as much as anything, also something weird I was in homebase today and got abig wiff of compose and thought of how nice it smelled it also made me really hungry, obviously I didn't want to eat it but it could have stood there and smelt it for ages lol.
